Thurs., April 16, 1:50 p.m., Northwest Hospital, N. 115th St. Officers were dispatched to Northwest Hospital to meet security, who were dealing with a discharged patient who was refusing to leave the premises. They contacted both parties at the west side main entrance doors, still on hospital property. The subject, a white female aged 54, was wearing open shoes with no socks, a light short sleeved t-shirt and light nylon pants. The subject said that she wanted to be re-admitted to the hospital. She stated she was homeless, and had been evicted from a women's shelter earlier that day. The outside temperature was 40 degrees, and the skies were clear. Subject was shivering and talking incoherently, and said she had only been in Seattle three weeks, and was from Oregon. She kept giving different names and was unable to follow a conversation coherently. Officers called an ambulance, intending to have the subject transported to Harborview Medical center for treatment, however when the ambulance arrived they explained that as the subject was already on hospital grounds she needed to be re-admitted to Northwest Hospital. Northwest Hospital staff wanted the subject trespassed from the grounds, and did not want her re-admitted. Officers explained that the hospital could not trespass one of their own patients, and said that if the patient was released after a subsequent exam she could be transported to Harborview. Officer completed an involuntary commitment sheet, which could be used to admit the subject to Harborview, should that become necessary.
